Commercial relocation. How to find the right office movers for your business

Moving offices is different than moving households. When you move your personal belongings, you can be fairly flexible because your income doesn’t depend on how quickly you get your boxes unpacked. With your office, however, every day you find yourself in moving limbo is a day that you’re not being optimally productive.

If you’re looking to move your NYC office, you’re going to need the help of professionals with experience, resources, and the proper equipment to get the job done. Commercial relocation requires detailed planning and impeccable communication, and your challenge is to find the NYC office movers who can take care of your office move with courtesy and professionalism.

Office moves are always fun!

Here’s what to look for in office movers for your business:

Communication Systems

There are lots of people involved in a commercial move, so communications are extremely important. You’ll have many people within your own business who need to be kept up-to-date on details about your move. Additionally, there will be property managers on both ends of your move, building staff, doormen, transportation authorities, moving truck drivers, packers, and more.

A moving company with systems already in place to handle communications will help your move to go much more smoothly. You’ll avoid frustration when everyone knows what’s going on and feels included and accommodated.

Customized Packing Solutions

Many of the items in your office can be packed in standard moving boxes, either by your employees or by professional packers. These items include standard furniture, manuals, files, and records. But many offices have specialized equipment that will require extra care. If you have sensitive electronic equipment, expensive servers, or unusual tools, you may need customized packing crates.

It’s possible to find outside sources that will create these custom packing solutions for you, but if the company that is handling the rest of your move can also take care of our unusual packing crates, everything will be much simpler.

Short- and Long-Term Storage

It’s not uncommon for companies to need temporary storage during office moves. This can come up when renovations have to be done in the new office space or when the facilities aren’t quite ready when the old lease ends.

Whatever the reason, it’s helpful to work with an office moving company that offers storage as part of their standard services. When you don’t have to work with an outside storage company, scheduling and access are much simpler and easier.

Experience and Customer Service

As you evaluate NYC moving companies to help you with your office move, ask about experience and customer service. As mentioned previously, it’s important to keep the impact of the move on your business to a minimum, and one of the best ways to do that is to hire a moving company that is experienced and treats you and your employees in a respectful, professional manner.

One of the best ways to find out about experience and customer service is to read testimonials and find out about the companies’ BBB ratings. The Better Business Bureau tracks complaints about different aspects of local businesses and then rates the businesses on a scale of A+ to F. Working with an A+ office moving company will be a pleasant experience, and that’s what you should provide for your employees–and for yourself.

Moving your office requires attention to detail, comprehensive planning, and impeccable reliability, and these are the attributes you should expect in the best office movers NYC has to offer.

But how do you go about finding the right commercial moving company for the job? Let’s take a look at some of the important things you should seek as you choose a professional office relocation company.

A professional office relocation company will have special packing for fragile equipment such as computers, servers, printers, and laboratory items and can even label the boxes according to the floor plan of your new office location.

Professional packing materials, such as heavy duty boxes, make a big difference in the safety of your office supplies and equipment. Our sturdy, well-engineered boxes come in a variety of sizes so you can choose the most appropriate boxes for your office belongings.

Storage

When working with office movers NYC employers know that storage can be a necessity at times. What if your new office isn’t quite ready when you thought it would be? What if your new office requires repairs or painting before the furniture can be moved in? These problems are easily handled by a professional moving company that has its own storage facilities. When you work with office movers that have their own NYC storage facilities, your options are open and your bases are covered.

Insurance

Nervous about getting everything safely from your old office to your new one? You don’t need to be nervous when you work with office movers NYC companies trust. Professional moving companies like ours have adequate insurance to guarantee the safety of your office furniture, equipment, and possessions.

Details

Moving is all about details, and a professional moving company should be able to handle the small stuff. For example, they should take care of parking permits where necessary and handle important scheduling matters. The valuation of your inventory may be important for insurance purposes, and they should be able to determine how many movers and trucks are necessary for your office move. Make sure that the office movers you choose have a great track record when it comes to the details.

Customer Service

Most of all, when you are moving offices, make sure you choose a company with a reputation for high quality customer service. Moving can be stressful, and you’ll want to know that you can call on your movers to answer questions and address concerns. Look for office movers that are listed with the Better Business Bureau. Before you trust your office to them, they should be able to show you impressive testimonials and be affiliated with respected organizations such as AMSA, LIMSA, Red Ball International, and the New York State Movers and Warehousemen’s Association. Also, consider how you’re treated when you call for information. Does the moving company have a longstanding tradition of treating customers like family? They should. Ask for referrals, and follow up with due diligence calls.
